History as Written by Native American Authors

"The title of this discussion [An Indian Viewpoint of History] is not meant to imply that all Indians share the same viewpoint about history. As a group we have many divergent and, sometimes, diametrically opposed viewpoints about the same issues. However, the majority of us who have an interest in history in general or are concerned with our own specific tribal histories seem to share an opinion: that there is an Indian side to the history of this continent and that its total human history is not always told fairly or completely."
